When this light comes on it is to alert you to the fact that a fualt or faults has occured in the electronic engine or emission control systems, there are over 200 such faults poss that turn this light on, a loose gas cap is just one of those 100's of faults, u need to have the system tested to see what code is stored in the memory of the on board computer known as the PCM

Either the gas cap has a faulty seal, or sensor is bad. Otherwise light may be on for different reason and engine codes will have to be read to pinpoint exact problem

What usually is the problem when the service Engine soon light suddenly comes on and the engine sounds fine?


could be many things, but the first thing I would check is the gas cap, if it is not tight or is not sealing properly the purge system will not work , and that will cause the service engine soon light, but keep in mind the car has over 30 sensors that can turn on the light.

I doubt the two problems are connected. I would try a new gas cap and see what happens since it runs fine. The service engine soon light won't reset on it's own right away.

How do you turn off or reset the "Service Engine Soon " light off without taking my Infinity I35 to dealer. Trying to avoid $200.00 dealer charge!
